Full Product Description
Jamal enjoys his voluntary work with down-and-outs but finds church irrelevant.Jack believes he's going to heaven but isn't sure what difference Jesus makes to him now. Aimee loves being part of a lively church but at work no-one would know she was a Christian.
They're all missing something. But life with Jesus is meant to be an all-encompassing adventure. In this dynamic and punchy book Chick Yuill explores the four concentric circles that make up the authentic Christian life:
walking in the company of Jesus
growing in the community of believers
engaging with the culture of the times
looking to the coming of the King
Only when all four are in place can followers of Jesus fully embrace the discipleship adventure.
Packed with stories and illustrations, this book explores how Christians can live life to the best.

Moving in the Right CirclesPhelim McIntyre, via The Good Book Stall
As Jesus prepared to ascend into heaven, and return to His father, he gave what is known as the ‘Great Commission’. He told the disciples to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’, despite this discipleship is one of the weaknesses of all denominations with it easier to make converts than disciples. In Moving In The Right Circles Chick Yuill attempts to help the church correct this, using the image of four concentric circles that need to be in place for us to be able to grow and act effectively as Christians. These four circles cover the areas of our personal life as a Christian, our membership of a congregation, our engagement with the culture around us, and how we prepare for Christ's return. This though is the weakness of the book – it is too individual focussed. The subtitle of the book is Embrace the Discipleship Adventure and sums up the idea that the book is for individual Christians who want to grow more, to be (to use an illustration from the book) disciples not members. But what if you are in a congregation that has not got it yet or realises there is a problem and wants to move from people being members to disciples? As the former Education and Training team leader for the church I attend I found little to help the church change how it did things, to help people ‘embrace the discipleship adventure’ as part of the body, to put the four circles of authentic Christian life in place. There is also the problem of Yuill's theology that comes from his time as a leader in the Salvation Army with its Armianistic foundation which, especially in his teaching on the Second Coming as well as other theological points, may put people off. Even with these problems I agree with the comment by Rob Parsons that this is an ‘important book’ and would encourage people to push past the points of disagreement and think through the challenges raised.
